Children help choose new equipment for Bury St Edmunds Acorn Park’s £60,000 revamp
Children are enjoying new play equipment at a popular Bury St Edmunds park thanks to a £60,000 refurbishment.
West Suffolk Council worked with pupils at Abbots Green Academy and Sebert Wood Community Primary School to choose equipment for the revamped Acorn Park, in Daisy Avenue on the Moreton Hall estate.
The new equipment includes swings, triple turning bars, a four way seesaw, roundabout and a multiplay with an overhead ladder, banister bars and slide.
Cllr Jo Rayner, cabinet member for leisure, culture and community hubs, said: “Refurbishing our play areas is important, not only to make sure the equipment is maintained, but to help attract people to use them.
“They play a vital role in being a free fun activity while keeping children fit and healthy as well as an opportunity for parents, family and carers to spend time with them.
“West Suffolk has a number of award winning open areas and country parks that we invest in and we would encourage everybody to use them.”
